Bloody stools: In 11 months old more commonly due to constipation. Some have anal fissures . If grose blood with abdominal distention, tenderness, fever , irritability, not eating or poor appetite, you need to take your baby to the emergency room or his pediatrician to rule out any surgical abdomen/ obstruction!
